Reason for the difference

Revenues of some business segments were impacted from temporal closures to prevent the coronavirus outbreak as well as world-wide economic slowdown, however, strong performance of products and services in the Digital Entertainment business including mobile games, computer and video games and card games led to consolidated results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 that exceeded consolidated results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020.

   2.    Recording of impairment loss 

The company assessed the recoverability of assets which was impacted from decrease in revenues due to the temporal closure of both directly managed sports clubs and outsourced facilities and shortened business hours in line with state-of-emergency declaration from government and business suspension request from local governments, moreover, from prolonged coronavirus outbreak. As a result, impairment loss of Y18,717 million for property, plant and equipment and trademarks was recorded since the recoverable amount fell below the carrying amount.

   3.    Loss on valuation of shares of subsidiaries (Non-consolidated) 

As for the shares of Konami Sports Co., Ltd., a consolidated subsidiary of the Company, loss on valuation of shares of subsidiaries of Y48,424 million was recorded as extraordinary losses for the year ended March 31, 2021 on a non-consolidated basis, considering decrease in net assets of Konami Sports Co., Ltd. that was impacted from coronavirus outbreak.

The loss on valuation of shares of subsidiaries was recorded in non-consolidated financial statements only, and was eliminated in consolidation.
